What started out as Edward James Olmos’s panel turned into a “Battlestar Galactica” Reunion panel as Mary McDonnell who had just flown in hurried out on the stage to join him! Together they reminisced about being on the series. Both talked extensively about what it’s like being minorities in Hollywood and the struggles that go with that. Edward scoffed that people now refer to him as “ruggedly handsome.” He talked about as a kid wanting to be everything from a great ballplayer, to a rock star, to finally an actor. He gave advice that no matter how much you might not want to do something, do it anyways, get up, get dressed, and goto work every day, it’s the only way to improve and become the best at your work.
Mary couldn’t remember who Mark Sheppard was when someone asked what it was like to work with him “Wasn’t he a caterer?”
When asked which Mary preferred to play, the First Lady (Independence Day) or the President (Battlestar Galactica) she didn’t hesitate, “The President of course.”
